Fish Tank

A slice of life movie that could have been called "Chav Life", but is instead called Fish Tank.

Mia is a 15 year old on an estate in London, her mother has a new boyfriend and a younger sister and gets on with neither. She is an aspiring dancer, and the boyfriend seems like a nice guy and encourages her. And then you can probably guess what happens, because I did, and it is as predictable as you'd think.

The chav aspect is only really colour, and this could easily have been about a girl from an upper class. I'm not entirely sure why this film was picked as there wasn't anything different I haven't come across elsewhere. The only reason I watched it was because it was listed.

Not really my movie, your views may differ.
